I.C.S. 22B: Textbook On Construction and Equipment of Electric Tramways and Railways, and Electric Signalling on Railways. Tramway Systems, Tramway Tracks, Tramway Overhead Work, Tramway Cars and Equipment, Brakes and Brake Rigging, ...Electric Signal

International Textbook Company Scranton, PA ca. 1900 Octavo, pp. approx. 400 (each section has its own numbering), extensively illustrated w/ b/w diagrams and drawings. Numerous appendices, index, study questions at end of text.
An amazing "work in progress" for the emerging light rail and railroad industries. Multiple references are made to developments in 1883 and 1885, leading us to believe that the text may be pre-1900. In its comprehensive treatment of the industry, it give a wonderful "snapshot" of all aspects of "tram-dom" as it emerges into the new century.
